The SXSW attractions are mounting up. Now Austin-local producer Robert Rodriguez and director Nimrod Antal will unveil footage from their upcoming remake of the Schwarzennegger flick Predators on March 12 at the Alamo Ritz at 10 pm. SXSW will also host the world premiere of Géla Babluani’s 13 as part of the SX Fantastic midnight section. The 2010 SXSW takes place March 12 – March 20.

Rodriguez shot Predators on location at his Austin Troublemaker Studios with director Antal. Mercenary Royce (Adrien Brody) leads a group of warriors who realize they’re assembled on an alien planet as prey (wasn't this a Twilight Zone episode?). 13 is a remake of the 2005 French film.

UPDATE: Here's a useful grid view of the SXSW schedule.

    "Predators" plural, with this premise, sounds like "Aliens." Hard to avoid assuming that a franchise is being rebooted.

    Why isn't Rodriguez showing Machete since that movie is completed and also was shot in Austi?
